Utilities for specifying the origin for an element's transformations.

Class reference

Class Properties
.origin-center transform-origin: center;
.origin-top transform-origin: top;
.origin-top-right transform-origin: top right;
.origin-right transform-origin: right;
.origin-bottom-right transform-origin: bottom right;
.origin-bottom transform-origin: bottom;
.origin-bottom-left transform-origin: bottom left;
.origin-left transform-origin: left;
.origin-top-left transform-origin: top left;

Usage

Specify an element's transform origin using the origin-{keyword} utilities.

<img class="origin-center transform rotate-45 ...">
<img class="origin-top-left transform rotate-45 ...">
<img class="origin-bottom-right transform rotate-45 ...">
<img class="origin-left transform rotate-45 ...">

Responsive

To control the transform-origin of an element at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing transform-origin utility. For example, use md:origin-top to apply the origin-top utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

Customizing

Origin values

By default Tailwind provides transform-origin utilities for all of the built-in browser keyword options. You change, add, or remove these by customizing the transformOrigin section of your Tailwind theme config.

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
theme: {
extend: {
transformOrigin: {
+       '24': '6rem',
+       'full': '100%',
}
}
}
}

Learn more about customizing the default theme in the theme customization documentation.

Responsive and pseudo-class variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for transform-origin utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the transform-origin utilities by modifying the transformOrigin property in the variants section of your tailwind.config.js file.

For example, this config will also generate hover and focus variants:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
variants: {
    // ...
-   transformOrigin: ['responsive'],
+   transformOrigin: ['responsive', 'hover', 'focus'],
}
}

Disabling

If you don't plan to use the transform-origin utilities in your project, you can disable them entirely by setting the transformOrigin property to false in the corePlugins section of your config file:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
corePlugins: {
    // ...
+   transformOrigin: false,
}
}
